Gulliver’s Travels

Gulliver’s Travels

Directions: After reading the assigned works, answer the following questions in one to two paragraphs. Support your thinking with examples from the text. Use complete sentences and spell check your work.

1.Describe the relationship between the Houyhnhnms and the Yahoos. Why is Gulliver awkwardly placed in this world? Why do the Houyhnhnms kick Gulliver out?

2. Explain some of the task Houyhnhnms can do with their hooves. Explain their customs around dying (Chapter 9). Gulliver admires the Houyhnhnms, but how does Swift feel about them? What might he consider to be wrong about their society?

3.How might the Houyhnhnm treatment of the yahoos contribute to their bestial behavior? The African slave trade was flourishing during Swift’s lifetime. Since Swift is quick to satirize the evils of human society, how might the reader draw parallels between the Houyhnhnm treatment of yahoos and the way humans treated other humans whom they had enslaved?
